ShiCo -- Exploring Shifting Concepts Through Time

What is ShiCo?

ShiCo is a tool for visualizing time shifting concepts. We refer to a concept as the set of words which are related to a given seed word. ShiCo uses a set of semantic models (word2vec) spanning a number of years to explore how concepts change over time -- words related to a given concept at time t=0 may differ from the words related to the same concept at time t=n. For example:

Mock concept shift Mock concept shift

You can find more details of how the concept shift works here and you can read the user documentation here.

How to use it?

You can read how to get your own instance of ShiCo up and running here.

How to extend it
